Rep. Posthumus talks about legislation that he will introduce in the next few weeks that will provide for professional licensure reciprocity between Michigan and other states. Rep. Posthumus says eliminating some of the red tape involved with transferring credentials will make it easier for professionals to move to Michigan.
Rep. Posthumus, a fifth-generation farmer and the Vice Chair of the House Agriculture Committee, talks about Tuesday as Ag Day and this week as Ag Week in Michigan, saying agriculture is, arguably, Michigan’s largest industry.
